Pregnancy Update - 23 Weeks

I can't tell if it's the shirt, or if I really have gained too much weight, but I look chunky! Also, why do we always take these photos at night, when I'm tired, my make-up is worn off, and my hair is flat? Poor planning!

How Far Along: 23 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Going to the doctor tomorrow... pretty sure I've gained a lot of weight...

Gender: BOY! We are so excited!

Movement: I think my baby might grow up to be a dancer, because I'm pretty sure I have a break-dancer in my tummy! I have a very active baby!

Baby is Big as a: Ear of Corn (8.5 inches, 1.5 pounds)

Sleep: I'm used to the new kind of "sleep" I get.

What I miss: Not too much... just having clothing I can wear... I had to "retire" two more shirts this week...

Cravings: Oh! Salami sandwiches with white bread and lots of mustard, how I miss you! Red meat again.... this one is weird for me, I was a vegetarian for 8 years, never was a huge fan of red meat after those 8 years: I get pregnant and bam! I'm a carnivore!

Food Aversions: I like things like Skittles, but they give me crazy heartburn, so I guess I have an aversion to them.

Symptoms: By the end of the day my lower tummy and back are TIRED!
Justin also pointed out that I can't multi-task anymore... I just get frustrated because I used to be able to... I think it's because my brain just processes things a little slower right now...

Best Moment this week: I'm looking forward to hearing baby boy's heartbeat tomorrow, and a Braves game this weekend! Oh, before the Braves game we are stopping at a THREE STORY Target to finish up our baby registry. So lots of things to look forward too.
